    How can I change the start date on the insurance? The patient was in 4/22/14 and again 5/6/14. The ins did not get entered until 5/1/14 and the system will not let me adjust the start date..

    I would suggest checking off the box above the plans that says "show expired plans" and you might see an old plan that was in place prior to the start of the new plan. If nothing is showing there then I would check on the guarantor first because the dependant cannot have insurance that extends beyond what the guarantor's coverage is for.

    Those are the two popular causes for denying a change to the start date.
